Truck Driver Injured When Trailer Tips Over in Saline County
An Arkansas man was injured on Wednesday night when his 18-wheeler tipped over on I-70.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that a 2015 Freightliner driven by 32-year-old Charles J. Morgan of Little Rock, Arkansas was westbound on I-70 in Saline County at the 68-mile marker when at 9:50 p.m., the vehicle traveled off the right shoulder, and the cargo he was delivering shifted which caused the truck to overturn and land on its side.
Morgan suffered moderate injuries and was transported by Sweet Springs EMS to Fitzgibbon Hospital for treatment.
The Freightliner was totaled and towed by Don's Truck Towing.
